Surf City Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Take a look at the other properties on Topsail Island in this price range first. Then come back to this page and make your comparisons. We are certain when you stay with us, you are getting the best value on the island. Give us a chance to prove it. We welcome any and all inquiries.

Sea Trace is a professionally decorated 4 bedroom, 3 bath townhome with excellent ocean views. Decorated in a vintage, nautical theme...Sea Trace makes for a true beach experience while enjoying the comforts and amenities of home. The reverse floor plan maximizes views from the living area. The kitchen and living room are very open, which is perfect for family gatherings. Located less than a mile north of the stop light in Surf City, on a quiet 'Dead End' street, with NO thru traffic makes it a perfect place to vacation with kids.

Two deeded beach accesses lead you on a 100 yard stroll to the ocean. Enjoy ocean views from the Master Bedroom, Kitchen, Living Room and two large decks. (1 Queen, 1 Double, 1 Bunk Bed (Cozy Kids' Room), 2 Twins, 1 Convertible Sofa) Cable TVs, Sony Playstation a few games provided...feel free to bring your own), Internet access, and DVD players are offered for your indoor entertainment. Very private outdoor shower with hot and cold water allows you to rinse off after a day at the beach or a swim in the ocean. Outdoor storage closets are perfect to store your beach chairs, sand toys, and boogie boards. Walking distance to restaurants and other activities, including a fishing pier, and a kayak and bike rental shop. (They also have a kayak launch for you to enjoy exploring the local tidal creeks...see link) Two car covered parking under the townhouse with a 'bad weather' entrance. (We like to use this area for family gatherings outside in the evenings)

FREE WiFi, High Chair, Pack n Play, DVDs, books, and board games also provided.

About The Owner

The Buckners live in Chapel Hill, NC but spend most of their time trying to get away for a long weekend to Topsail Island. We enjoy hanging out at the beach, riding bikes to the ice cream shops, and taking naps on the patio. Our son and his friends enjoy swimming in the ocean and tidal pools, building sand castles and volcanoes, and searching for crabs with a flashlight at night.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2004

Why The Owner chose Topsail Island

We decided to buy on Topsail Island because of the family oriented beach, beautiful landscape, and it's convenient location.

What makes this townhome unique

Sea Trace is close enough to dining and entertainment while still offering privacy because it is located on a dead end street. There is no through traffic. We offer the best value based on location, furnishings, and amenities of any property in this price range. We invite you to compare other properties to Sea Trace prior to inquiring. We are certain that Sea Trace is the best value!

Great place, Family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Nice location with great view. Perfect size for our family with 3 teens who like their own space. We had room to spare. Quick access to the beach was wonderful. The owners were very responsive to our questions and a pleasure to work with.

This townhouse was perfect! Great location and proximity to the beach and convenient to everything in town. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The owner, Tammy, was a doll and easy to deal with. Would gladly stay here again!

This was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

4 adults, 1 teenager, and 2 (9 year olds) all stayed here and had a wonderful time. The place is clean, the beach is right there! Tammy and her husband made sure that we had everything that we would need because of the Hurricane that was heading out. I must admit this is one of my favorite places to be. I will definitely rent this place again, and I recommend it to all my family and friends. (The beach is maybe a minute walk, and this is my pace- VERY SLOW). I just cannot say enough positives!!

Top Notch Vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Tammy, Your home was one of the best we have rent over 25 years!!! Really appreciated the extra bonuses like new shower liners, good cookware, excellent frying pans. etc. We moved our luggage into a clean enviorment with no objections. We were pleased with the view of the ocean but didn't swim there because of crowds, ( I have a sister and brother who have homes on the island where the beaches do not have public access). My husband found lots of sea glass on your beach because of the gravel bars...We all thank you for sharing your blessings with us!!!! Will definitely rent again

Fabulous Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six just stayed at this condo in September and it was A+ from start to finish! Loved the professionally decorated rooms. The rooms were roomy and bright, the condo was exceptionally clean, clean, clean! The view was fantastic and the neighbors were real friendly too! The walk to the beach was just a short walk...1-2 minutes at best and the porches were a nice place to retreat to after a long day on the beach or of a full day of shopping! Thank you for providing such a beautiful condo at such an affordable rate!

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I completely enjoyed our stay at your place. It was clean, big, lots of beds for everyone, several bathrooms, and the beds were even comfortable. We enjoyed the cable tv and wifi too. I really enjoyed having my morning coffee on the deck. It was a lot closer to the beach then I had imagined and we spent a lot of time there.... even caught some fish... found lots of great shells. It was just a perfectly wonderful time for our family. Thank you so much for making it available to us.
